I was cleaning out my photo files, burning to cds, and came across this one. I had forgotten about it, but now I'd love to hear what anyone thinks....

I took the picture, on my farm of a friend and my sheep. I was standing still, just used a little $100 digital camera. Photos taken before and after are "normal" but this one clearly isn't.

I did add the black square over my friend's face, but have never done anything else. Its just a jpeg digital pic.

Any ideas of what I took a picture of?? I'm guessing energy vortex, but.....? And is it as weird to anyone as it is to me??

sorry for external image - can't figure out how to imbed in post.

try taking a photo while rotating the camera, keeping the subject of the photo in view however, and you will see this effect, provided your camera's speed isn't like one of those micro speed camera's. same theory if you move something in a scanner.

this may or may not be the reason for the anomalies in that photo.

Come on! This trick is classic. All you do is rotate your camera while it is taking a picture with it set to a longer than normal shutter speed, preferably one short enough to create a quick fluid movement. I do this all the time. And there is nothing "energetic" about that pic either.

Energy Vortex
The picture was taken by someone swirling with the aperture open either that or it's a photoshop filter swirling the picture.

Right. well, you can all laugh and say I did something fancy, but I know I pointed the camera, standing still, and took a few cute pics of my friend and animals. and got this.

So, if anyone can, for just one minute, believe that I didn't do anything but take a regular pic with a regular point and shoot camera, well, your thoughts are the ones I'd like to hear.

Um no. That is a common photo artistic manipulation with the camera. Friend of mine does pictures like this all the time....also can be done in photo editing software....

Example here

Another Example

100% done on purpose to obtain that effect....

Part of what I'm taking in my degree program this semester is Digital Photography..and the course summary we got in class this week includes instruction on how to generate this effect without Photoshop or other software. Yet, you're saying you did nothing to deliberately create this.

Might I suggest an alternative for how this happened without your knowingly causing it? If you had a twitch at the right millisecond as the camera was taking the picture....say pushing the button on the side of the camera a bit too hard to cause a VERY slight physical rotation effect at that magic moment of -snap-. I don't think it would need to be much...or even enough for you to have noticed yourself. The camera sure did though!

I'm pretty sure you didn't realize you did this, but this IS a what happens when you rotate a camera either on purpose or on accident. The EXIF data shows an exposure time of 1/60 secs. While that is not necessarily long exposure, it is plenty long enough for a quick rotation by hand to result in the vortex.

This is what you did. If not, then "energy vortices" and other paranormal things that appear in camera look indistinguishable from photo manipulation or aberrations.

Your link sent me to yahoo log in?

I just tried this on my phone and it didn't have that effect?

In fact there wasn't any difference. Maybe it doesn't work with phone cams?

ETA:

Link worked for me that time


Did you use a digital camera for that?

Try it again. I had it set to private. Not anymore.

It does also work on phones. They just take pictures differently.

Geez guys I dunno why all the fuss is over the "energy vortex". I must say the thing that has me a little perplexed and a little worried I might add, is old baa baa on the bottom of that photo. Shifty eyes I tells ya!!!

LOL! This threads becoming like what you see when you hold 2 mirrors in front of each other.

It is a filter in an image editing program. If it was done by rotating the camera, then the subject would be blurred as well as the background.
